WATCH: Netflix Releases Trailer For Mitt Romney Documentary

To further bloody the nose of traditional television and movie outlets, Netflix will release an original documentary on January 24—Mitt, which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival a week before its Netflix release, is a behind-the-scenes look at Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign.

Highlights of the trailer include a defeated Romney on the verge of tears while his family consoles him after his loss. “By the way, anybody have a number for the president?” he jokes, to break the tension.

The much-anticipated documentary will be America’s first look at the human side of Romney. Other scenes show him playing with his grandchildren and ironing his shirt sleeve—while he is wearing it.

The Romney team tried to make his backstory a hallmark of the campaign, largely to no avail. For example, a 10-minute bio video was shown at the Republican National Convention in 2012, but many news networks used the time to interview pundits instead of showing it.

    poor Mitt. He may have to go out and make another 250 million to console himself

      Not to worry, he will just buyout a profitable company, close it, and send the work to China, for bigger profits.

    It will not help him win the Presidency. It will only build his ego, which already too big.

    As history now records the total ineptitude of the Romney campaign, it reveals how wrong so many of his supporters were when they promoted him as a businessman. Their argument was that government should be run like a business and therefore a businessman is the best choice. What I knew all along was that vulture-capitalists like Romney are not businessmen at all. They are opportunists and predators, not true entrepreneurs. A capable entrepreneur who has built a business from the dust would have run a smarter campaign.

    I personally don’t subscribe to the theory that businessmen make good Presidents, one need only take a good look at the administrations of Calvin Coolidge and the M.B.A.-holding George W. Bush to figure that one out.

      And if anyone believes that W earned that M.B.A., I have a bridge I can sell them. The only way he got either of his degrees was undoubtedly due to a combination of daddy’s contacts and daddy’s money.

        A rich boy got his daddy to buy him the world’s biggest fireworks kit for Christmas, and he played with it for eight years until the voters took it away from him.

    Thanks to Silence Do-gooders for another confirmation of his bigotry and lack of class.

    The “human” side of Romney? He is afflicted, as are his children and wife, with “affluenza”. I am so happy we now have a term for it, it just seems to make his whole mindset so much more easily understood.
